*  March 4, 2014 - 7:30 pmIt Runs in the Family: On Being Raised by
Radicals and Growing into Rebellious Motherhood Frida Berrigan  Frida
Berrigan is a mother and stepmother, wife and daughter. Her parents, Phil
Berrigan and Elizabeth McAlister, were a former priest and nun who became
nationwide icons for their prophetic witness against war and nuclear
weapons, which sometimes resulted in long jail sentences. Berrigan grew up
in the community they helped found, Jonah House in Baltimore, and becoming
a parent herself has forced her to come to terms with her own upbringing in
new ways. Expanding on the stories in her popular column for the website
Waging Nonviolence
Berrigan has crafted a welcome antidote to the various parenting fads
currently on offer from French moms and tiger moms and mean moms. She
offers a unique perspective on parenting that derives from hard work, deep
reflection, and lots of trial and error. *

Concert with
Letitia Van Sant & the Bonafides
and Mark Whitaker

 * Letitia VanSant & the Bonafides
(are a Baltimore & Washington, DC-based quartet that straddles the boundary
between acoustic string band music, roots rock, and the confessional folk
of a singer-songwriter. *
*Parts & Labor, to be released on February 27th, is their first full-length
release as a band. The ten original songs focus on stories of how our
economy affects the people and places we hold dear. The album was made
possible in part by a grant from the Pickett Endowment for Quaker

 *Mark Whitaker
is a banjo-wielding singer/songwriter from Boston, MA. Shaped by years of
narrowly escaping threats from hostile banjo naysayers, Mark's innovative
playing style is sure not to offend, and likely to be enjoyed. His music
draws from a range of influences including folk, blues, pop, and bluegrass.
With rich vocals and thoughtful lyrics, Mark's songs offer a fresh and
introspective take on everyday emotions, as well as heavier subjects like
crisis, heartbreak, heartburn, and heart repair.*
